Then one of them, name Caiaphas, who was high priest that year, spoke up, “You know nothing at all! You do not realize that it is better for you that one man die for the people than the whole nation perish.” He did not say this on his own, but as high priest that year, he prophesied that Jesus would die for the Jewish nation, and not only for that nation but also for the scattered Children of God, to bring them together and make them one. So from that day on they plotted to take his life. John 11:49-53 NIV
What the devil intends for evil, God uses to fulfill His plans! When we look at prophecy–from The Word, not the mouths of those who would deliberately misguide others–we see that prophecies (spoken as God speaks to His prophets) and His Word will be fulfilled, no matter what the devil does. He turned the evil intent by Joseph’s brothers to good–fulfilling His plan that Joseph would have rule over his brothers. Saul sought to kill the Believers, but God used his zeal and passion to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ, once he was transformed on the road to Damascus.
Though we, who have discerning spirits–know The Word and know that the evil perpetuated upon the nation in the guise of legalism by those who sit in high places–we should remember how God uses the evil the devil attempts to do to fulfill His Plans.
We do not need to concern ourselves overly much about the condition of mankind for God has a plan–and His plan will be fulfilled–no matter how He has to bring it about. Our concern should be in promoting the Gospel–no matter how much people resist hearing The Word--we continue with diligence and zeal to say what God says.
Perhaps, because of the state of the nation–God is using this time to reveal the hearts of those who proclaim to know Him in order to prune their hearts so they can see themselves clearly and get right with God.
What we need to do more than ever is to pray for those in authority–so they will truly hear from God and do only those things that God tells them to do.
Justice must prevail–according to God’s righteousness, not man’s polluted views of God’s intent for mankind.
And we know–that in the end–we shall stand before Him and give an account of what we have done in the earth. Will we be exposed for plotting evil or good? It is indeed time–or rather past time–for all to search their hearts, according to God’s Word–not political correctness and ask God to transform us–acting as True Ambassadors for good, not evil.
